JOINT RESOLUTION
Designating the week of April 9, 1989, as `Crime Victims Week'.
Whereas millions of Americans are victims of crime each year;
Whereas many of those crime victims are traumatized further by the physical,
psychological, and financial burdens resulting from their victimizations;
Whereas the sensitivity of our Nation's criminal justice system must be
improved when working with crime victims and their families;
Whereas much progress has been made to correct these injustices by implementing
in the Federal, State, local, and private sectors the recommendations of
the President's Task Force on Victims of Crime; and
Whereas continuation of these efforts must be encouraged to ensure the
restoration of balance to our Nation's criminal justice system and the
fair and compassionate treatment of crime victims and their families: Now,
therefore, be it
  Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of
  America in Congress assembled, That the week of April 9, 1989, is designated
  as `Crime Victims Week', and the President is authorized and requested
  to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to
  observe such week with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.
